The New Yorker is teaming up with the House Select Committee on Jan. 6 with a new book out ahead of the fall midterms publishing the probe’s partisan report with activist commentary cloaked as “analysis” throughout its pages.
Since its inception, born out of the ashes of a failed proposal for a 9/11-style commission, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6 Committee has served as one of the Democrats’ latest hoaxes to keep voters angry and weaponize the levers of government against political enemies. Allies of the regime’s House probe at The New Yorker are now capitalizing on the committee’s work, monetizing its report in paperback due September, less than two months before the November elections.
In March, Democrats on the committee conceded to The Washington Post that their work was all about the upcoming midterms as a desperate attempt to smear their opponents as extremists in an election cycle historically hostile to the party in the White House.
“Their challenge: Making the public care deeply — and read hundreds of pages more — about an event that happened more than a year ago, and that many Americans feel they already understand,” the Post reported, followed by the passage below (emphasis ours):
They’ll attempt to do so this spring through public hearings, along with a potential interim report and a final report that will be published ahead of the November midterms — with the findings likely a key part of the Democrats midterm strategy. They hope their recommendations to prevent another insurrection will be adopted, but also that their work will repel voters from Republicans who they say helped propel the attack.
Their partnership with The New Yorker is their latest vehicle to meet that challenge, publishing the report in nearly 900 pages as advertised on Amazon.
The corporate media collusion marks another parallel between the Jan. 6 Committee and the witch hunt operation behind the Mueller report, when Democrats monetized its non-findings with The Washington Post in 2019. The government probes have both persecuted political dissidents based on made-up claims, stoked hysteria among voters, and driven profit for friendly press outlets at their conclusion.
The Mueller report was the product of a two-year investigation driven by Democrats who now face prosecution for their crimes involved in fabricating a collusion scandal between former President Donald Trump and the Russian government. After Special Counsel Robert Mueller wrapped up his investigation with unlimited resources, not one person, let alone Trump himself, was found seeking to undermine American interests as a double agent on behalf of the Kremlin. In fact, at least one of the phony narrative’s original authors was himself a suspected Russian agent.
The fictitious tale of Russian collusion, however, took deep roots among no small part of the American population in power, leading legacy media to respond to blockbuster revelations surrounding President Joe Biden’s son with a knee-jerk reaction of dismissal as Kremlin disinformation. A top staffer on the Jan. 6 Committee even signed the now infamous letter from October 2020 with dozens of former intelligence officials writing off the Hunter Biden stories as Russian disinformation.
